The Birthday Number

The Birthday Number is another numerological parameter that is derived from the date of birth. There are four parameters that are considered to be the most important in any numerological profile, and you already know two of them: the Life Path Number and the Birthday Number.

First, let's take a look at how the Birthday Number is calculated. Nothing could be simpler. Just take the number of the day of the month when the person was born and keep adding its digits together until you have a single digit. Here are a few examples.

Date of birth: March 1, 1980. Birthday Number: 1.

Date of birth: February 24, 1955. Birthday Number: 2 + 4 = 6.

Easy, right? Now how do we interpret this number?

The Difference between the Life Path Number and the Birthday Number

We now have two numbers for every person we know: the Life Path Number and the Birthday Number. Occasionally, that number can be the same number in both cases, but such occasions are relatively rare. If it is the same number, we can simply interpret that as meaning there is more of the same kind of energy, or quality, in this specific person. But what do we do when the numbers are different?

It is important to understand that different numerological parameters (and you will see quite a number of them in these lessons) describe either different aspects of the same person, or, as it is the case with Life Path Number and Birthday Number, different numerological parameters provide a different zoom factor. I like to phrase this as: they give a description in a different scale.

The Life Path Number shows us the task of a person's whole life. It's like a bird's-eye view of that person's life. On the other hand, the Birthday Number is like a close-up view. It shows what kind of approach the person uses to solve problems with regard to his or her Life Path Number. In other words, it describes the person's gait when he or she is walking the Life Path. Are they walking purposefully, like a businessman, or do they lope freely, or trail along at snail's pace?

Alternatively, you can think of the Life Path Number as a general direction while the Birthday Number is a specific route, or road, or trail, or maybe even a virgin field where the person walks day-by-day to follow that general direction of their Life Path.

So which of these numbers do you think are more noticeable in everyday life? If you said the Birthday Number, you're absolutely right. This is one of the easiest numbers to use when learning and understanding numerological parameters. With very little effort, you can find out something clearly visible and obvious about a person and his or her attitude towards life.

If we take these two numbers together and think about how they interact, we will wind up with a much more meaningful, two-dimensional image of the person. The key to understanding the combined interpretation of the Life Path Number and the Birthday Number is this: to follow one's numerological code, a person should do what their Birthday Number indicates while moving towards the goal shown by their Life Path Number.

Interpreting the Birthday Number

As usual with interpretations, I tried to be careful and not to give descriptions that are too detailed. From my point of view, overly detailed interpretations have little practical value. They don't stimulate the student's own thinking, but offer themselves as something ultimate and ready to use. Instead, a student needs to understand that any interpretation is necessarily subjective and based on someone's personal experience. As different people's life experiences differ, their interpretations should also be different.

Therefore, rather than detailed interpretations, I will try to give you some ideas and concepts that are designed to direct you in your own studies, as a help in accumulating your own experience and understanding. Practical numerology should always be based on one's own experience. It was Pythagoras who taught that we should cognize the numbers personally and in practice, rather than take them as some fixed idea.

When interpreting the Birthday Number, we'll make some finer distinctions between specific days of the month when the person was born. For example, the Birthday Number One will belong to those who were born on the 1st day of a month, but also to those who were born on the 10th day, and on the 19th, and on the 28th. In each of these cases, the initial numeric code will be different and that will make a subtle difference in Birthday Number interpretation.

Since the Birthday Number makes more sense when interpreted together with the Life Path Number, I will offer you a few ideas on how interpret them together, rather than pure Birthday Number interpretations alone.

Birthday Number One

If the person was born on the 1st day of any month

Here we have Number One by itself. These people tend to be independent and autonomous, and prefer their own original approach in everything they do. They like to start things, to make the first step in a new direction. They aren't that interested in other people's opinions, and prefer not to go into details, approaching everything at large and leaving finer details and nuances to someone else. They like everything new and unusual, and prefer to do everything quickly, in one go.

If the person was born on the 10th day of any month

The qualities of Number One are additionally emphasized and clearly noticeable. In addition to everything that was said for people born on the 1st of a month, there is an emphasized tendency towards leadership, a strong desire for independence, and a clearly perceivable ambition. There can also be an exaggerated originality in order to not be like the others.

If the person was born on the 19th day of any month

The theme of Number One is in the forefront, however there is also an influence of Number Nine that lends a width of interests and desire for support from others. Maybe it is exactly in this case that leadership abilities reach the highest expression, as there is also an underlying ability to listen to other people, guide them and lead them. All the qualities of Number One are present here, but they are more open towards other people and are used for their sakes.

On the other hand, 19 is one of the Karmic Numbers, and so these people might be burdened with problems that don't seem to be caused by their own personal qualities. One of the possible karmic manifestations here is self-aggrandizement, neglect of others, but also possible rejection of outside help and self-isolation in the circle of personal problems.

A couple of examples for this specific version of Birthday Number One include Bill Clinton (August 19, 1946) and Nicolaus Copernicus (February 19, 1473).

If the person was born on the 28th day of any month

In this case, the qualities of Number One are modified by Numbers Two and Eight, and one of the possible results is that the person may desire independence not only for themselves but also for their partner. Autonomy and originality are not considered important in and of themselves, but rather as a means of achieving some large-scale practical goals. Initiative is combined in this case with the ability to continue something that was started while the bird's-eye view of the world is combined with the ability to take care of details. Quite often, such persons can be interested in one or another form of art.

One example of someone who has this Birthday Number variety is Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (August 28, 1749).

Combination of Birthday Number One with Different Life Path Numbers

Birthday Number One, Life Path Number One

The natural abilities of these people resonate very well with their long-term goals. They march ahead bravely and decisively, having no doubts in their correctness and clearly seeing the goal. They are self-sufficient, and others’ intervention in their business is seen as an annoyance, at the best of times. Those who have Number One twice can create miracles and reach the unreachable thanks to their ability to concentrate in one direction.

An example of such a combination of numbers is Blaise Pascal (June 19, 1623).

Birthday Number One, Life Path Number Two

The global aim of these people is partnership, equilibrium, and harmony. However, to achieve the desired, they must always remain themselves, rely on themselves, and act as a kind of axis for balancing numerous conditions and compromises. Number One in this combination gives the ability to take the first step, to give one's shoulder to another person to lean on, to find an unusual exit from a dead-end situation. This is a great combination of numbers for a diplomat or a politician.

One example for such a combination is Bill Clinton (August 19, 1946).

Birthday Number One, Life Path Number Three

With this combination, the large-scale goal is creativity, and Number One emphasizes the significance of the creative person. This combination might belong to an actor who remains himself in every role he plays. It is also typical for any creative endeavor where the people have the ability to show themselves brightly, to demonstrate their personal virtues and satisfy their ambitions. In any case, there is a concentrated, extraordinary creative potential that seeks an opportunity to be expressed.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (August 28, 1749) is one example of this combination, and another is Indira Gandhi (November 19, 1917).

Birthday Number One, Life Path Number Four

These people take on difficult tasks and prefer to deal with them on their own, without support from anybody. Or perhaps the case is not that they prefer no outside help, but find that there aren't many people who are ready to help them, since the modus operandi of Number Ones is to do everything alone, in isolation. Ideally, people with this combination of numbers are able to take complex tasks (Number 4) and make them simple (Number 1), they get inspired by ideas (Number 1) and implement them, creating some complex multilayered structures (Number 4), either intellectual or real. On the other hand, there can be a tendency to make mountains (4) out of molehills (1).

Birthday Number One, Life Path Number Five

These people acknowledge the limitless diversity of the surrounding world, but at the same time they try to explain it with a single idea, a unifying principle, in order to keep their point of view constant, as if allowing the world to rotate around their personal center of gravity. These people are universal; they can find common language with any group and often take on the roles of team leaders while still remaining themselves and not changing to accommodate others.

One such person is the founder of homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann (April 10, 1755).

Birthday Number One, Life Path Number Six

Depending on the scale of their interests, people with such a combination of numbers can be actively interested in relationships between people in society in general, or in some specific groups, or inside the family. Very often, these people have strong ideas about how everything should be arranged and organized, and they keep comparing whatever is happening in reality with those ideas. Quite often, Number Six is associated with some kind of art, and in that case, the combination of One and Six might mean innovative, distinct, bright style, and a lack of desire to follow others.

An example of a famous person having such a combination of numbers is Giuseppe Verdi (October 10, 1813).

Birthday Number One, Life Path Number Seven

Under the influence of Life Path Number Seven, Birthday Number One people strive to penetrate the mysteries of Creation, or the details of complex intricate problems. At the same time, having Birthday Number One, these people don’t need any helpers or advisors; they tend to choose their unique paths and unique approaches to their problems. Also, Number One adds practicality to an otherwise purely theoretical interest, and as a result, the desire to unveil a mystery turns into a desire to get some practical benefit from the theoretical knowledge.

One of the celebrities with this combination of numbers is Jean-Baptiste Lamarck (August 1, 1744).

Birthday Number One, Life Path Number Eight

This is an excellent combination of numbers for a leader or a manager: the general ability and desire to coordinate some large-scale practical activity is supported by self-confidence and the ability to rely only on one's own energy and resources. In some cases, the exaggerated qualities of Number One can lead towards dictatorship tendencies, neglecting the interests of the others, and insisting that one's point of view is the only one that is possible and correct. On the other hand, the qualities of this combination of numbers are indispensable at times of crisis, because these people become the only reliable support for many others.

One very good example here is Boris Yeltsin (February 1, 1931).

Birthday Number One, Life Path Number Nine

Potentially, this is a very fruitful combination of numbers. However, the distance between One and Nine is so significant that it might well be very difficult to make use of its potential in real life. Number Nine gives idealism, global interests, and love to utopic ideas, while Number One opposes all this understanding of one's own exclusivity and uniqueness. Results can differ widely, from presenting oneself as a Messiah and the savior of the world, to following extravagant cults without the possibility of demonstrating one's originality in any other way, to even a scientist striving to explain the whole of Creation with a single simple idea. In most cases, however, the combination of Nine and One generates a significant creative potential.

One example of a person who had this combination of numbers is Nicolaus Copernicus (February 19, 1473).

Birthday Number Two

For persons born on the 2nd day of any month

In his or her approach to life, this person tends to keep equilibrium in everything, taking into account different opinions, and ensuring he or she does not neglect a large number of various details. Mutual understanding with partners is important for Number Two, as well as the possibility, if necessary, to rely on someone, to refer to someone else's authority. This person is usually polite, diplomatic and prefers to play by the rules. Number Two people pay a lot of attention to their appearance and to the impression they make on other people.

Britney Spears (December 2, 1981) has such a Birthday Number.

For persons born on the 11th day of any month

Two Ones in the numeric code of this day quite strongly oppose the nature of Number Two, which makes the person less interested in partnership, more self-reliant and self-sufficient. On the other hand, because of Number One's ability to concentrate, sensitivity to fine details can reach very high levels for those born on the 11th, even to the degree that the person becomes aware of the invisible, spiritual side of the world. Interest in esoteric subjects is quite possible with this Birthday Number.

Number Eleven is also called a Master Number and can therefore give a person born on this day unusual abilities, such as very strong intuition and powerful influence on other people. He or she might find it difficult to express their understanding in words, and so will prefer music, painting or other non-speaking forms of art.

For persons born on the 20th day of any month

The principle of harmony, which is essential for Number Two, becomes important for the social life of this person. It is even more noticeable than in the case of those born on the 2nd day of any month. Those born on the 20th often choose a profession or a hobby somehow connected to interpersonal relationships, diplomacy, or art. No matter what they deal with, however, their approach is very thorough, with plenty of attention to details, and so any work usually takes lots of time. An acute sense of justice is typical for those born on the 20th day, as well as responsiveness and diplomacy.

An example of a person with this Birthday Number is Sviatoslav Richter (March 20, 1915).

For persons born on the 29th day of any month

The influence of Number Nine brings this person's interests and abilities to a higher vibrational level - they become more global, idealistic, and theoretical. Theory of music, history, other cultures or the global economy can be important for such a person.

On the other hand, since 2 and 9 add up to the Master Number 11, the ability to influence other people can be quite strong with this person, and he or she may possess outstanding intuition, sometimes reaching the level of clairvoyance.

Combination of Birthday Number Two with Different Life Path Numbers

Birthday Number Two, Life Path Number One

This person was born to play the role of a pioneer, an initiator, but in order to manage this role successfully he or she needs someone else: a partner, an advisor, a good friend, someone on whose shoulders the person can lean. People with this numeric code often become the initiators of various beginnings, connected to relationships between people, attitudes towards people, justice and equality. They bring an understanding of harmony, beauty, and the necessity of compromise into social groups where such ideas aren't normally considered.

A typical example of such a combination of numbers is Mikhail Gorbachev (March 2, 1931).

Birthday Number Two, Life Path Number Two

This is Number Two squared! In those cases when the Life Path Number and the Birthday Number are the same, the person generally understands his or her purpose more or less, and chooses an appropriate profession or business. In the case of Number Two, the qualities and traits include: sensitivity, artistry, attention to minute details, diplomacy, readiness for a compromise, cooperation and partnership.

Birthday Number Two, Life Path Number Three

The purpose of this person's life is creativity, but when following this path, he or she should be sure to pay a great deal of attention to the little details, as well as to keeping balance and harmony. It is therefore important for such people to give a large portion of their lives to creative endeavors that require a lot of efforts or are otherwise difficult. Examples include music, dance or painting. Number Two is strongly associated with the kinds of creativity that do not simply provide an outlet for self-expression, but also are strongly oriented towards making an impression on someone, such as a spectator or a listener.

Birthday Number Two, Life Path Number Four

This combination of numbers is well-suited for jewelers and creators of various miniatures. It has in it plenty of hard, difficult work, persistence and patience, but at the same time, a deep understanding of beauty and attention to every tiny detail. This person is able, if he or she desires, to understand the most complex structure, whether it involves a technical device or the human soul. Additionally, this person can make a correction if something goes wrong. Whatever these people do with their lives, they can serve and function properly for a very long time.

Birthday Number Two, Life Path Number Five

Number Five suggests multiplicity and breadth of interests while Number Two adds that well known attention to detail. In one sense, it might be easy to lose one's way in the vast amount of details offered by this number combination! One needs a powerful mind capable of analysis, comparison and mutual coordination of multiple contradicting factors. These kinds of people are invaluable when it comes to tasks like managing the logistics of a large enterprise, for example. But some of them prefer to create mind-boggling theories in science. There can be, however, some very different cases where Number Two amplifies artistic or musical abilities of the person. If this happens, these people will want to try as many life experiences as possible before expressing them using their creative talent.

Birthday Number Two, Life Path Number Six

This combination of numbers is an alloy of harmony and creativity. Number Six gives interest towards other people's lives in different scales -- family, society, state -- while Number Two focuses attention on partnerships and interpersonal relationships, nuances of mutual understanding, justice and cooperation. These qualities can be important for a psychologist or a social worker. Additionally, both numbers are related to art, so the person with this numeric code knows well what to do in order to be liked by other people, to make a beneficial impression on them.

A couple of examples of this combination: Honoré de Balzac (May 20, 1799) and Britney Spears (December 2, 1981).

Birthday Number Two, Life Path Number Seven

This is a very introverted combination of numbers. The Path of Seven leads to an occupation such as research, penetration of the veil of mystery, and solving puzzles, while Number Two adds love to details. Such a person tends to be consumed by work and not very interested by whatever is going on in the surrounding world. Because of this combination of qualities, it is unlikely that we'll find many celebrities with this numeric code but in principle, such numbers could easily belong to a very focused and determined analyst, detective or scientist.

Birthday Number Two, Life Path Number Eight

The talents of Number Eight lie in managing people and money, and in the organization of complex projects. But Number Two doesn't like to be in the foreground, so when this person holds any kind of managerial position, it is usually from behind the scenes, such as in the role of an aide, advisor, or maybe a CFO rather than the CEO. It should also be noted that the combination of numbers Two and Eight can often be found in the numeric code of composers and musicians. This is understandable, since music can be complex and multi-faceted, and in many cases involves background interaction with other people.

Birthday Number Two, Life Path Number Nine

The modesty of Number Two doesn't match very naturally with the global interests and generosity of Number Nine. Such a combination can often be found in the numeric code of people who play the role of a partner, an aide or a spouse of some celebrity. If someone else was born to save the world or make people happy then the person with Birthday Number Two following the Life Path of Nine will make sure that that person has rnough money for a meal and a decent suit.

Birthday Number Three

For persons born on the 3rd day of any month

This person approaches everything in his or her life in a creative, non-standard way, prefers to participate in activities he or she likes (something that brings inspiration), and typically performs much worse in a routine environment with rules and red tape. People born on the 3rd day can express their thoughts in a convincing and interesting way, but they are also able to listen, and know how to entertain other people. At the same time, they shun discipline and responsibility. Normally, these people are optimistic and full of enthusiasm, but they can be disappointed easily and can become sulky if met with misunderstanding.

Examples of people born on the 3rd day are Franz Kafka (July 3, 1883) and a famous Russian poet, Sergei Yesenin (October 3, 1895).

For persons born on the 12th day of any month

The creative potential of Number Three is modified by the overtones of One and Two, and Number One is more pronounced as it is in the first position. It is important for such people to express themselves and ensure that they have been noticed by others. Those born on the 12th day often have an artistic talent. They find new ways and possibilities of self-expression and they pay more attention to details than a pure Number Three tends to do. In some unusual way, they manage to combine idealism with logic, and they know how to share their confidence and enthusiasm with others.

Examples of people born on the 12th day: Charles Darwin (February 12, 1809), Stanisław Lem (September 12, 1921), Justus von Liebig (May 12, 1803), Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809), and Luciano Pavarotti (October 12, 1935).

For persons born on the 21st day of any month

These people are similar to those born on the 12th day, but the overtones of Number Two are more prominent, so the opinions of others are more important, and more attention is paid to details and nuances. Still, the desire to be noticed, recognized and praised remains. Of all those who have the Birthday Number Three, people who were born on the 21st day are the most perceptible and prone to listening to the opinions of the others. Their creativity can often be influenced by someone else's advice or opinion, and they prefer the creative endeavors that do not require verbal expression, like music or painting, although typical for Number Three is the ability to use words creatively.

Some examples of people born on the 21st day are: Ernest Hemingway (July 21, 1899), Alfred Nobel (October 21, 1833), Plácido Domingo (January 21st, 1941), and Christian Dior (January 21, 1905).

For persons born on the 30th day of any month

With this number combination, the creativity of Number Three rises to a higher social level, so people who were born on the 30th day strive to express themselves in society, or to reflect society's problems in their creations. Typically, such people have plenty of energy and they are truly devoted to what they are doing. As a result, they are able to share their points of view with very many people.

Examples of people born on the 30th day include Jaroslav Hašek (April 30, 1883), Ernest Rutherford (August 30, 1871), and Franklin D. Roosevelt (January 30, 1882).

Combination of Birthday Number Three with Different Life Path Numbers

Birthday Number Three, Life Path Number One

Because Number One affects the way it does, people with a Birthday Number of Three and a Life Path of One tend to follow their own path, and maybe this path is a new one which they have forged. On the other hand, thanks to Number Three, whatever they do comes from the depths of their souls and is a result of creative self-expression. This combination of numbers is typical for innovators in creative endeavors, trendsetters in fashion, and founders of new genres and styles. Even if such a person isn't involved in anything related to art, he or she prefers to be on the cutting edge of any activity, because everything new is very interesting for this person.

Examples of people with this combination of numbers are Christian Dior (January 21, 1905), Plácido Domingo (January 21st, 1941), Alfred Nobel (October 21, 1833), Ernest Hemingway (July 21, 1899), and Ernest Rutherford (August 30, 1871), the greatest physicist-experimentor of the 20th century.

It is said that Ernest Rutherford was a large man with a loud voice, limitless energy and a noticeable lack of modesty. And Rutherford's colleagues often mentioned his extraordinary ability to always be at the cutting edge of scientific research.

Birthday Number Three, Life Path Number Two

The qualities of Life Path Two are contemplation, emotional sensitivity, understanding of human relationships and beauty of the surrounding world, so those born with Birthday Number Three always have something to tell other people. People with this number combination have a talent for simply and clearly expressing the minute nuances of their experiences and relationships between people. They are also able to formulate the rules ensuring justice and equality. Diplomacy and law are the natural spheres where people with this combination of numbers can find themselves.

Birthday Number Three, Life Path Number Three

Creative energy is so strong in people with this number combination that nobody would ever dare to think they are not special, that they are similar to everybody else. No matter how old they are, they manage to retain a childish sincerity, directness, freshness of vision, and like the child from the tale of the emperor's new clothes, they can convey their insight to others regarding unexpected aspects of seemingly mundane things.

An example of such a person is Franz Kafka (July 3, 1883).

Birthday Number Three, Life Path Number Four

Seriousness and heaviness of the Life Path Four is, in this number combination, in contradiction with the joy and childish playfulness of Number Three. However, this contradiction can result in a very substantial creative potential. People with such a combination of numbers manage to do serious and difficult things playfully and happily. They are masters of nonstandard approaches, and instead of making a front assault on an obstacle will invent an original approach that allows them to resolve the problem in minimal time and with minimal efforts. Such people find satisfaction in solving puzzles and finding ways out of dead ends. On the other hand, their creative style can be complex, multilayered and difficult for other people to understand.

Birthday Number Three, Life Path Number Five

Life Path Number Five suggests interest in many different sides of life, a multi-faceted nature, and a tendency to appear at the center of events, whereas Number Three helps the person to seek out the positive in everything as as well as providing them with the ability to tell about their findings to those around them. Politicians with this number combination often win because they can imbue people with optimism and hope for a better future, while actors with these numbers in their numeric code are quite universal and can find a common language with pretty much every audience. These people often find themselves at the center of attention, and when they speak everyone in the crowd feels as if they are being personally addressed.

A couple of examples of such number combinations include Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809) and Franklin D. Roosevelt (January 30, 1882).

Birthday Number Three, Life Path Number Six

The interest in life, society, country, and family which is typical for Number Six is combined here with the ability of an unusual approach and fresh point-of-view of Number Three. A person with this combination of numbers is usually loved by everyone in his or her family and knows very well how to please every family member. If people with such a numeric code decide to become politicians, they will find plenty of old outmoded rules and regulations, and they will have a burning desire to get rid of all that useless heritage. In any case, the combination of Six and Three provides powerful creative potential and a youthfully strong desire to ensure that everything is good for everyone.

A bright example of such a person is Peter the Great (May 30, 1672, old style).

Birthday Number Three, Life Path Number Seven

The insight and analytical abilities of Number Seven ensure a constant stream of information for the stories of Number Three. People with this numeric code enjoy solving puzzles and telling other people what they've discovered. Quite often they have a technical or a scientific mind and have interests in subjects that may seem extremely complex to other people. At the same time, they manage to avoid seeming tedious as they have upbeat attitudes and are sincerely interested in whatever they are doing.

Birthday Number Three, Life Path Number Eight

The Life Path of Number Eight is about managing people and large-scale projects, while with Birthday Number Three, the ability to use words, formulate thoughts, and find creative, non-standard approaches to problems are main tools. People with this number combination strive to convince others around them, particularly those who might be in subordinate positions, of their righteousness, so that others will give their support wholeheartedly and not just submit to the power of authority. Authors writing about business and theoreticians of music canalso often have this combination of numbers.

Birthday Number Three, Life Path Number Nine

Both these numbers are related to creativity. The Path of Nine is associated with greatness of plans, idealism, and sometimes a dream to make humanity happy, while Number Three provides sincerity, directness, and the ability to find common language with people. People with this combination of numbers can be successful missionaries of some worldview, enthusiastic scientists or, if they choose to deal with art, their creations may reflect dedication or even selflessness. Their work may state something like: Here, everything is for you, I don't need anything for myself.

Birthday Number Four

For persons born on the 4th day of any month

Number Four gives people industriousness, integrity, responsibility for matters entrusted to them. They like order and feel uncomfortable in the midst of chaos. They tend to try to create some logical system on which to rely. Another characteristic of Number Four is honesty, an unwillingness to look for or use workarounds, even when the circumstances invite it. A Number Four person is usually not in a hurry, but rather he or she prefers to be thorough, allowing their substantial patience to overcome any arising obstacles. Some lack of flexibility often prevents such people from noticing simpler approaches, however, and as a result they tend to use more energy than is really necessary.

A couple of examples of people with this Birthday Number are Antonio Vivaldi (March 4, 1678) and Isaac Newton (January 4, 1643).

For persons born on the 13th day of any month

In this case, the Birthday Number Four is modified by the presence of Number One, for which self-identity is important, as well as Number Three, for which interest and inspiration are more important than order and responsibility. Additionally, Thirteen is one of the Karmic Numbers, which I will discuss in a later lesson. As a result, people born on the 13th day appreciate the requirements of Birthday Number Four but tend to act against them. They can develop a spectacular creative talent that manifests as if despite objective circumstances, but usually such people feel that they get much more than their fair share of difficulties. One possible way in which the karmic nature of this number can manifest itself could be that people spend their whole lives looking for a vocation, the kind of work they would truly enjoy, and that could also satisfy their ambitions. But whatever they find, they continue to doubt whether it really is the best possible option.

For persons born on the 22nd day of any month

Number two occurs twice here, and as a result, people born on this day not only tent to work long and hard, but they also pay more attention to detail than a usual Number Four would do. In addition, they can establish strong, successful relationships with others. They are also resource savvy. Unsurprisingly, with all the talents Number 22 gives, it is considered to be a Master Number. In its most productive manifestation, this number helps people to build large scale structures, both material and social, or to do some other work where a prolonged organized effort of a large number of people is required. Not every Master Number has a chance to show itself though, and people who were born on the 22nd day can be very similar to those born on the 4th day, different only in that they may pay more attention to detail.

For persons born on the 31st day of any month

In addition to the prevailing influence of Number Four, we can clearly see the creativity of Number Three, and also some of the ambition of Number One. The essence of people born on the 31st day can be expressed as "organized creativity". It is important for them to do something they really like, but at the same time they tend to like the same kinds of things that resonate well with Number Four, which means they have a clear structure and rhythm, and they require responsibility and prolonged, patient efforts. A person born on this day will work a lot, but at the same time will find an opportunity for creativity.

Two examples of this Number are Johann Sebastian Bach (March 31, 1685) and Franz Schubert (January 31, 1797). Schubert also died at the age of 31 (!) but managed to write an unbelievable amount of music in his limited time.

Combination of Birthday Number Four with Different Life Path Numbers

Birthday Number Four, Life Path Number One

The vocation of people with this combination of numbers is to find new paths, to be pioneers, and to formulate new problems that nobody before them would ever dare to approach. But at the same time, such people not only generate ideas, they also take care of their practical implementation. They set a goal and then persistently, sparing no effort, strive to reach it. They put severe requirements on themselves and function as their own strict judges, not allowing any weaknesses and requiring complete dedication.

An example of someone with this combination of numbers is Isaac Newton (January 4, 1643).

Birthday Number Four, Life Path Number Two

The theme of this combination of numbers is tedious work -- maybe the kind of work done not in one's own interests but to help others, to practically implement someone else's ideas. People with this numeric code often serve as reliable support systems and provide hope for others. They take care of reserves, routine details and usually don't have a desire to be in the forefront, but instead work quietly behind the scenes, allowing their partners to shine.

Birthday Number Four, Life Path Number Three

These people follow the path of creativity. Their roles are to be inspired in themselves and to rejoice in others. At the same time, they are not afraid of work and tend to not just speak but also build, organize, and keep things in order, in order to ensure that everything gets done in time, and that the team remains on schedule. Because of their involvement in practical problems, such people might tend to create fewer masterpieces or make fewer inventions than other creative personalities, but they will nevertheless have many more tangible practical results than some less practical dreamers.

Birthday Number Four, Life Path Number Four

Duty, responsibility and order are inseparable qualities of people born with this combination of numbers, and the problems they endeavor to solve in their lives are appropriate for their skills. However, the lessons of double Number Four are not easy. In their youth, such people might rebel against responsibility and order. They probably believe that the burden of their destiny is too heavy, but with years and experience they come to understanding that chaos isn't really something they enjoy, and so they tend to change their attitudes dramatically, becoming reliable and supportive members of society.

Birthday Number Four, Life Path Number Five

The Life Path of Number Five makes people desire to try as many different things in their lives as possible, while Birthday Number Four requires them to bring all their impressions and experiences into some sort of system -- not to wander aimlessly but rather purposefully accumulate practical experience. As a result, people with such a numeric code can become experts in many very different areas. They attempt to find a common structure in various forms and events of life in order to better understand and systematize them all. They are ready to be flexible and versatile, even if that means a lot of work to do.

Birthday Number Four, Life Path Number Six

People with this number combination are able to clearly see imperfections in relationships -- whether on a small scale in their own families, or a larger scale in society -- and they try to make those relationships stronger, practically feasible and work more fruitfully. If this kind of attitude is practiced in one's own family, it is typically not very well accepted by the family members, as order and responsibility do not combine well with emotional care and comfort. On the other hand, when it comes to society as a whole or in an office setting, these kinds of people are indispensable: by creating a working, structured system, they help the other team members to more easily confront and deal with difficulties.

Birthday Number Four, Life Path Number Seven

The insight and thoroughness of Number Seven works well with the honesty and practicality of Number Four. People who follow the Path of Seven tend to solve puzzles, finding hidden meaning, while the Birthday Number Four prompts them to use what they found in a practical and perhaps even lucrative manner. If these people decide to become scientists, they are quite likely to select a branch of science that allows for practical application. Even in everyday life, however, people with this numeric code will -- from others' perspectives -- find many possibilities for original and unexpected yet valuable solutions.

Birthday Number Four, Life Path Number Eight

Whereas the Life Path of Eight suggests managing people, profiting from large-scale projects, Birthday Number Four moves people to invest as much energy as possible in themselves. The combination, therefore, results in someone who puts tremendous energy into whatever they are doing but also expects the same from subordinates. This number combination is strongly associated with practical savviness and common sense. People with this numeric code don't have many illusions or fantasies, but only recognize something if it can be put to a practical test.

Birthday Number Four, Life Path Number Nine

The Life Path of Nine gives people high ideals, aspirations and global plans while Birthday Number Four requires them to not only dream but also do something tangible, practical, encouraging them to turn their dreams into the realities of life. These kinds of people usually feel most comfortable when working in scientific, charitable or other similar organizations with higher goals, even though it may not be that practical. However, these same people will still have a desire to do something real, tangible, and useful.

Two very different examples for this combination of numbers are Charles Lindbergh (February 4, 1902) and Johann Sebastian Bach (March 31, 1685).

Birthday Number Five

For persons born on the 5th day of any month

Number Five lives in the surrounding world, sharing all its joys and sorrows. People with the Birthday Number of Five enjoy traveling and adventures because this allows them to see and experience many new things. Stories told by a Number Five person are usually very popular as they are based on numerous experiences and impressions. Maybe because of these stories, or perhaps due to their multifaceted life experiences, or even because of their charismatic personalities those born on the 5th day usually find themselves the focus of other people's attention. They are often asked for advice, or they can be used as an example to others. Number Fives dislike boredom and routine and can sometimes get a reputation of being irresponsible and undisciplined, simply because boredom tends to keep them from staying long in one place.

A few examples of people who were born on the 5th day are Walt Disney (December 5, 1901), Louis Lumiere (October 5, 1864) and Karl Marx (May 5, 1818).

For persons born on the 14th day of any month

Those who were born on the 14th day are a more disciplined and persistent manifestation of Birthday Number Five. They still long for a diversity of experiences and manage to try many things in their lives, but periodically they concentrate on something and put significant effort into that particular thing. People with this combination have stronger ambitions than other representatives of Number Five, and when they work, they strive for rewards or honors for what they've done. Fourteen is one of the Karmic Numbers, and its karmic side can show itself as often-changing circumstances of life. As a result, it can be difficult for a person to achieve anything substantial in a specific endeavor, even if he or she desires that.

A couple of examples for this Birthday Number are Albert Einstein (March 14, 1879) and Stefanie Graf (June 14, 1969).

For persons born on the 23rd day of any month

In this case, the common theme of Number Five is modified by the interest in relationships and attention to detail of Number Two on one hand, and the creativity of Number Three on the other. Hence, people born on the 23rd day of the month often become interested in some form of art. For this person, romantic adventures can become an important school-of-life experience, and it's particularly wise for these people to delay marriage until a time when they have a really good idea of what they want out of a love life. Family responsibilities can be too heavy for people born on the 23rd day, though they will easily find a common language with the kids. Additionally, they can usually adapt with ease to any situation, and they enjoy making an impression on others with the freshness and originality of their ideas.

Combination of Birthday Number Five with Different Life Path Numbers

Birthday Number Five, Life Path Number One

The main task of a person following the Life Path One is to be a pioneer, to find new paths, to discover new continents, and the addition of Birthday Number Five is very appropriate here. After discovering new territory, people with this numeric code will strive to not miss even a single interesting detail. And then, after returning to their ordinary lives, these people will fill others with awe when they tell stories, show pictures, etc., of their discovery, and they will awake in people the desire to also experience something new and unusual.

Two examples of people with this number combination are Akira Kurosawa (March 23, 1910) and Walt Disney (December 5, 1901).

Birthday Number Five, Life Path Number Two

Following the Path of Two, which means learning to comprehend human relationships, emotions, and to keep balance and ensure justice, a person with Birthday Number Five tries to approach a problem from many different directions. He or she can easily find common language with people, figure out the most appropriate emotional tune for effective communication, and each new person met adds one more little bit of understanding of life for them. The main problem for people with this combination of numbers can be when it comes to keeping permanent relationships, as well as taking on some responsibility in relationships. They might believe that the more other people they have in their lives the better, but eventually they might realize that among all these people, they don't really have anybody they can actually rely on.

Birthday Number Five, Life Path Number Three

The Life Path of Number Three leads to creative self-expression, to searching for ways of getting joy out of life, and this resonates very well with the nature of Birthday Number Five. However, Number Fives feel it is boring to have fun alone, and they prefer to seek their enjoyment with the company of good friends. Therefore, in the creative endeavors of a person with this combination of numbers, one will often find a blend of different points of view, traditions and styles. The end result will not always be well balanced and harmonious, but it will certainly never be boring.

Birthday Number Five, Life Path Number Four

The Life Path of Number Four assumes responsibility, and even some severity and ascetism. Number Five with its love for diversity might not like this. As a result, people with this combination of numbers do a lot of work, as Number Four requires, but at the same time they use many different tools and approaches and look at the problem from many different points of view. As a result, these people can achieve a lot more than those who obstinately follow a single direction.

Birthday Number Five, Life Path Number Five

Here, Number Five shows itself in its full glory. A life full of impressions and adventures is something people with this number combination desire very much. They change their spheres of experience often, meeting many interesting people in each of them and leaving traces of themselves everywhere. Later, when studying the biography of such a person, a reader might decide that he or she never really managed to achieve anything specific, but the reality is that they experienced much and made a great impression on everyone around them, and this sort of life for them is the essence of happiness.

Birthday Number Five, Life Path Number Six

The Life Path of Six leads to the search for harmony in the surrounding world, as well as for the laws that make this world a single live entity, while the tactics of Birthday Number Five is in using multiple approaches and numerous attempts to solve the problem. A person with this combination of numbers listens to others' opinions carefully and gleans the most useful benefits from those opinions in order to better him or herself. In a family, these people are considered the main advisors because they've been so many places and seen so many things, whereas in an office they can be quite successful as coordinators of collective efforts.

An example of a person with this numeric code is Albert Einstein (March 14, 1879).

Birthday Number Five, Life Path Number Seven

The Path of Number Seven is the path of research, a quest for a hidden truth, while Birthday Number Five gives a diversity of approaches and a broad worldview. People who have this combination of numbers tend to approach a problem from many different sides and look for many possible solutions. On the other hand, the puzzle they choose to solve may be something more complex, multifaceted and multi-layered. They may be trying to find some sense, looking for a uniting principle in a seeming chaos of details.

An example of this combination of numbers is Carl Linnaeus (May 23, 1707), the father of modern taxonomy.

Birthday Number Five, Life Path Number Eight

People with this numeric code tend to undertake complex projects -- multi-step combinations that require the coordinated actions of many people -- and succeed in them because the breadth of perception of Number Five allows them to view the project from all different angles, to see the forest and the trees simultaneously. Additionally, Birthday Number Five helps people feel comfortable being at the center of attention, able to find a common language with many different kinds of people. They often notice possibilities hidden from others due to their perspicacity and flexibility of approach.

Birthday Number Five, Life Path Number Nine

Numbers Nine and Five make a good, harmonious combination. Both have a strong interest in the world around them, but Number Nine has a strong desire to give, to share, to make others happy, while Number Five helps to replenish resources and works to keep the center of gravity in place. The result is an inexhaustible generator of creative ideas, comprehensible and interesting for many people.People with Life Path Number Nine and Birthday Number Five are interested in everything the world has to offer; they enjoy telling stories and may be inveterate travelers.

Birthday Number Six

For persons born on the 6th day of any month

A person born on the 6th day is sensitive to beauty, strives for harmony and prefers to play by the rules, and wants to make sure that everyone feels good . This person is acutely aware of any injustice or disharmony encountered and, depending on other numerological parameters, he or she might react in a number of ways, from fighting that injustice, ridiculing it, or instead supressing their irritation and pretending not to have seen anything. These people understand others very well, are sympathetic and ready to help. If someone else is having an argument, these people may play the role of intermediary or peacekeeper, as they have a talent for finding a solution acceptable for both parties. Peace and concord in the family are very important for people born on the 6th day, as well as mutual understanding with the people closest to them.

An example of a person born on the 6th day is Ronald Reagan (February 6, 1911).

For persons born on the 15th day of any month

Number Six's desire for beauty and harmony is blended here with the independence of Number One and the broad worldview of Number Five. These people find harmony in the surrounding world, and they confidently share with others the importance of that discovery, and how it can be beneficial to them. They are perceptive and attentive to people around them, but they also value their independence and self-sufficiency. People with this combination offer others an environment in which they can enjoy the warmth of their sympathy without bothering the host too much. As all representatives of Number Six, people born on the 15th day are likely to have artistic tendencies and creative abilities, but in addition, they also have the enthusiasm and self-confidence to demonstrate what they've got.

Examples of such people are Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929), Napoleon Bonaparte (August 15, 1769), William Herschel (November 15, 1738), and Edvard Grieg (June 15, 1843).

For persons born on the 24th day of any month

In this combination, Number Two increases sensitivity and attention to details, while Number Four adds patience and the ability to work hard to implement understanding of harmony. It is not important for people with this number combination to be noticed. They feel responsibility for those close to them, they desire order and justice, but order for them isn't some dead mechanical orderliness, but life itself, with its abundance of nuances and little strange things. Many of these people have a talent to restore order and mutual understanding in the middle of chaos.

An example of person born on the 24th day is Simón Bolívar (July 24, 1783).

Combination of Birthday Number Six with Different Life Path Numbers

Birthday Number Six, Life Path Number One

This person often plays the role of a leader, paving a new path, but also carries his or her own understanding of harmony, beauty, and justice, and strives to teach people how to live in a better way, offering new ways of harmonic coexistence. People with this combination of numbers readily accept new ideas and try to make sure that an abstract idea becomes reality, while working to prepare society to accept this idea.

Examples of people with Birthday Number Six and Life Path Number One are Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929), Napoleon Bonaparte (August 15, 1769), and Edvard Grieg (June 15, 1843).

Birthday Number Six, Life Path Number Two

Relationships play an important role in the life of a person with this numeric code, and he or she doesn't just accept existence but actively tries to achieve harmony and justice, and works to bring more life into relationships. Such people often have a very strong influence on others. Their opinion can be a key factor for resolving a problem that other people thought was hopeless.

Birthday Number Six, Life Path Number Three

The inexhaustible creative potential of Number Three is polished, perfected, and harmonized by Number Six. This combination of numbers is the essence of art and creativity. People who were born with it have a lot to say, but it is also very important how they express themselves. They want everything to be beautifully balanced and aesthetically perfect. I found that this combination of numbers is very common for famous Russian painters, and I am planning to do some further research and see how often Western painters have Life Path Number Three and Birthday Number Six.

Birthday Number Six, Life Path Number Four

People born with this combination of numbers have a difficult path. They have to deal with problems and overcome obstacles, but despite this, their attitudes towards life never become course or angry. In the midst of hardship, they strive to find harmony, to discover manifestations of life. And if there is life, nothing is lost. These people are often the ones approached by others in difficult situations because they have a talent for finding a source of hope even in the desert of despair. Also, people with this numeric code feel responsible for the askers and will never decline to help.

An example of such a person is Sigmund Freud (May 6, 1856).

Birthday Number Six, Life Path Number Five

A person born with this combination of numbers takes part in the life of the surrounding world in all its diversity, and has an easy time finding a common language with all kinds of people. At the same time, this person has a special aesthetical perception that allows imperfections and disharmony to be clearly seen, but this person is also able to find harmony and beauty in places where nobody else would expect to find them. Since people with this number combination are close to others, they can easily share their ideas and invite others to help them.

Birthday Number Six, Life Path Number Six

The repetition of Number Six makes for emphasized and harmoniously expressed artistic abilities, a desire for balance and justice, and a good understanding of the laws and relationships existing in the society. When both Life Path Number and Birthday Number are represented by the same number, there are fewer steep turns and abrupt changes in the person's life. However, when a certain number is repeated several times in a person's numerological profile, it can sometimes show its reverse side instead, and this is especially true for Number Six. You may often notice that people with more than one Number Six, instead of caring about others, only care about themselves, and instead of creating beauty, defiantly enjoy ugliness. These kinds of distortions are especially typical for teens, though with age they usually give place to the true qualities of Number Six.

Birthday Number Six, Life Path Number Seven

The research potential of Number Seven becomes especially substantial and developed under the influence of Birthday Number Six. For this kind of person, it is not sufficient to dig out the truth, to find a hidden fact, or to solve a complex puzzle. It is more important for them to find out how everything works, interacts, lives and breathes. This combination of numbers can give an increased interest in societal life, especially the hidden parts, the behind-the-scenes portion of life. On the other hand, if the person chooses to pursue scientific research, the Number Six will help him or her to approach the subject in a versatile and creative manner.

An example of a famous person with such a numeric code is Pierre Curie (May 15, 1859).

Birthday Number Six, Life Path Number Eight

The Life Path of Number Eight assumes dealing with complex practical tasks, while the Birthday Number Six can present itself in two different ways. On the one hand, it may increase interest in nature or societal life -- those facets of the world where harmony and coordination are especially important. On the other hand, particularly in business (an area of interest for Number Eight), Number Six can show its influence on the choice of projects, drawing attention to jewelry, fashionable clothes, items of art or anything else that makes life more pleasant.

Birthday Number Six, Life Path Number Nine

The globality of tasks that this person deals with is combined in this case with the desire to find beauty and harmony. Very often, this combination of numbers attracts a person to science, but it can also be typical for a devoted traveler, interested in the culture of different nations, or an actor or artist who pays a lot of attention to folklore. Typically, such a person has strong creative abilities, but they can be expressed in a somewhat abstract way, not comprehensible for the public.

An example of a famous person with this numeric code is William Herschel (November 15, 1738).

Birthday Number Seven

For persons born on the 7th day of any month

The typical qualities of such a person are shrewdness and meticulousness. In everything they do, they strive to get to the very essence, understanding very well that external attributes can only hide the truth that lies beneath. Strong analytical minds are typical for these people. They like to deal with aspects of life that are inaccessible to others, the types of things that are considered taboo or simply unacceptable on ethical or other grounds. These people are very different from others, and they are proud of it. However, those same reasons can occasionally cause depression. They understand how complex the world is and how many problems it has, and so they typically have a rather pessimistic worldview.

Some examples of people who were born on the 7th day are Marie Curie (November 7, 1867), Charles Dickens (February 7, 1812), Paul Gauguin (June 7, 1848) and Vladimir Putin (October 7, 1952).

If the person was born on the 16th day of any month

The influence of Number One, which is added here, reminds the person with Birthday Number Seven once again that he or she is special, different from others, consequently increasing their confidence in their abilities. On the other hand, there is a tendency for them to go deeply into their own problems and to stay there for an extended period of time. The additional influence of Number Six gives an understanding of beauty, an interest in other people's lives, and strong familial connections. In some cases, Number Six can manifest as a desire to create one's own special club, or school, or some kind of organization. Those born on the 16th day differ from "pure" Number Sevens in that they are much more attentive to the opinions of people around them. Still, they prefer to work in solitude and typically will not follow anybody's advice.

An example of a person born on the 16th day is Madonna (August 16, 1958).

For persons born on the 25th day of any month

For the Number Seven, it is generally typical to look at life through a magnifying glass, but here, the added influence of Number Two turns the magnifying glass into a microscope. An intense interest in everything mysterious and incomprehensible to others is combined with openness to the outside world (due to the influence of Number Five). As a result, the mysteriousness of people with this combination becomes evident to others and they acquire an aura of inscrutability and sexuality. Number Two in this combination can manifest itself both as a subtle understanding of relationships and a deep comprehension of art.

Some examples of people born on the 25th day are Pierre-Auguste Renoir (February 25, 1841), Allan Pinkerton (August 25, 1819), Pablo Picasso (October 25, 1881), Carlos Castaneda (December 25, 1925), and Antoni Gaudí (June 25, 1852).

Combination of Birthday Number Seven with Different Life Path Numbers

Birthday Number Seven, Life Path Number One

Number Seven and Number One are somewhat similar in the sense that both prefer to act on their own, in solitude. However, Number One assumes the role of a leader while Number Seven prefers to stay in the shadows. A person with this number combination will be comfortable in a role of an expert, an analyst, a "brain" in any new undertaking, where something is created for the first time, or where something completely unknown is studied. He or she can become a successful leader of a group, but only if everyone else in the group is also an expert. This person has a very strong personal opinion and will never agree to change it no matter what.

Birthday Number Seven, Life Path Number Two

People following Life Path Number Two can choose to work with art, personal relationships, or business, but whatever they do, they will strive to become an expert, to learn every little detail, and as a result they will acquire abilities so powerful that others simply can't even imagine. A combination of numbers Two and Seven often gives some special, magnetic influence on members of the opposite sex, however these people know and understand too much to truly enjoy romantic relationships.

Two examples of people with this combination of numbers are Madonna (August 16, 1958) and Antoni Gaudí (June 25, 1852).

Birthday Number Seven, Life Path Number Three

People following the creative Life Path Number Three are eager to tell everyone how interesting the world is, and since Birthday Number Seven helps them to dig deeper than others and see things that are hidden behind the veil of commonness, these people really have something to tell. Because people with this combination of numbers can see deeply into the problems of life, their creations can be often colored in somber colors and have a bitter flavor. In many cases, these people find it difficult to find common ground with others because not everyone is able to think with their intensity.

An example of a person with this combination of numbers is Charles Dickens (February 7, 1812).

Birthday Number Seven, Life Path Number Four

This person works a lot to bring the surrounding chaos into a system, while the intuition and analytical abilities of Number Seven help him or her to not lose perspective. This pair of numbers offers an opportunity to thoroughly understand and sort out even the most complex of problems. There are almost no obstacles that such a person would be unable to remove, or work around, or dig under. They are like water that gradually drips through stone, always finding a way.

A good example of such a combination of numbers is Marie Curie (November 7, 1867).

Birthday Number Seven, Life Path Number Five

The Life Path of Number Five manifests as a broad number of interests and typically some amount of superficiality. However, Number Seven digs deep, and even though a person with such a combination of numbers might hit fewer targets than other Number Fives, he or she will become an expert, and usually in more than one area. Such people can surprise everyone; compared to other erudite people, these folks have an unusual depth of knowledge, while compared to other experts, they are unusually versatile. They are experimenters trying many different things and accumulating a multi-faceted experience, though they may lack stability and systematicness.

Birthday Number Seven, Life Path Number Six

For those who follows Life Path Number Six, it is typical that they have an integral, holistic perception of the world. Love, beauty, and kindness are usually not easily compatible with logic and common sense but Birthday Number Seven still tries to take everything apart and check what's inside. This combination of numbers can be useful for a psychologist, politician, or sociologist. It might be not easy for such a person to have success in his or her own family life, however, since they like to get to the heart of every issue and tell truth even if it hurts a loved one.

Birthday Number Seven, Life Path Number Seven

Double Seven is usually evidence of a high-intensity personality. Even when meeting this person for the first time, most people will recognize that he or she is special, different from others somehow. It should be noted though that sometimes, especially in youth, a person with strong presence of Number Seven can express him or herself paradoxically, e.g. they may try to be like everyone else, attempting to blend in with the crowd. Even then, however, it's easy to see that these people have some kind of additional depth. They understand a lot without words, and it is difficult to hide anything from them. Many of them have a talent for finding hidden or lost objects. As a rule, such people devote their lives to a single occupation and tend to reach a significant success in it.

Examples of people with both Life Path and Birthday represented by Number Seven are Paul Gauguin (June 7, 1848), Vladimir Putin (October 7, 1952), Allan Pinkerton (August 25, 1819), and Joseph Louis Lagrange (January 25, 1736).

Birthday Number Seven, Life Path Number Eight

Number Eight offers a rather complex path: people following it must manage multi-faceted, complex problems and still achieve tangible, practical results. Number Seven doesn't do anything to simplify this path. Instead, it makes it even more narrow and intricate due to its aspiration for perfection and the fact that ideas that are simple and obvious for a Number Seven are usually incomprehensible for most other people. This combination of numbers would be useful for en engineer or an architect creating something massive and complex. When it belongs to an artist, his or her creations might be marked with a symbolic innuendo, heaviness and a problematic nature.

An example of a famous person who had this combination of numbers is Pablo Picasso (October 25, 1881).

Birthday Number Seven, Life Path Number Nine

A person with this combination of numbers is interested in the whole world -- and not only our world but every existing world, the whole universe. However, in this person, the idealism of Number Nine meets the meticulousness of Number Seven, so he or she doesn't take anything on faith but instead analyzes, criticizes, compares and tries to break every concept or idea. These people are the kind who are ready to believe in God but only if they are given proof of His existence. They have a strong mind, capable not only of analysis but also the ability to grasp the most abstract of concepts, so these kinds of people are invaluable in the sciences.

An example of a person with such a number combination is Carlos Castaneda (December 25, 1925).

Birthday Number Eight

The further a number gets from Number One, the more complex, and voluminous their characteristics become. In many numerology books, Number Eight is associated with abilities in business, and talent in handling money. This is very appropriate in many cases, but I find that the nature of Number Eight is actually more complex because I have found that very many talented actors have Number Eight prominent in their numerological profiles. Upon learning this, I had to adjust my understanding of this number accordingly, and you'll see the results of this in the interpretations that follow.

For persons born on the 8th day of any month

This person is ambitious, and has plenty of energy to do really big things. He or she is able to exert significant intellectual and emotional efforts, and as a result of that, can occupy a leadership position in his or her profession. People born on the 8th day work a lot, but they prefer an intellectual or emotional kind of work, as opposed to a physical one, because they understand that efficiency of efforts on those levels is much higher. It might be difficult for them to make close personal relationships with other people because of the magnetic power of their personality, which can become overwhelming at times.

A couple of examples of people born on the 8th day are Paul Dirac (August 8, 1902) and Emanuel Swedenborg (February 8, 1688).

For persons born on the 17th day of any month

A substantial power and ability to influence other people of Number Eight is modified here by the influence of numbers One and Seven, and as a result, while it is important for this person to be the first and only, he or she can also see deeply into people and things and easily recognize any falsity. People born on the 17th day demand a lot of themselves and of others as well. If they desire, they are able to push other people's buttons in order to get what they want.

For persons born on the 26th day of any month

A great personal power is combined here with high sensitivity, understanding the essence of relationships and striving for harmony. This person understands well the emotional gears that move society and knows how to use them. He or she likes to use their influence on other people and see the results of it. This is one of the best numbers for psychologists and actors.

A couple of examples of people born on the 26th day are George Gershwin (September 26, 1898) and Carl Gustav Jung (July 26, 1875).

Combination of Birthday Number Eight with Different Life Path Numbers

Birthday Number Eight, Life Path Number One

This person tends to walk untrodden paths and he or she has enough personal power for this. In principle, such people tend to make great managers or directors, but that happens only if they are able to share their responsibility with the people. The potential problem with this is that this combination of numbers also makes a person quite confident that he or she is the only one who is able to sort out their problems, and that nobody else even comes close to their ability to concentrate on the task, or to their level of energy and ability to influence a situation. This pair of numbers potentially results in them having difficulty establishing close, trusting relationships with others.

An example for this combination of numbers is Paul Dirak (August 8, 1902).

Birthday Number Eight, Life Path Number Two

Personal power in combination with understanding of human relationships and attention to detail gives these people a substantial talent for persuasion, and sometimes an irresistible charm. Because of the high intensity of their personalities and their ability to concentrate on the critically important elements of a problem, such people are able to achieve results that seem fantastic to ordinary people. If they really want it, they can get anything from anybody, because they understand very well the emotional underpinnings of any situation.

Birthday Number Eight, Life Path Number Three

Following the creative Life Path of Number Three, this person fills his or her life with the magnetic energy of Number Eight, and as a result can achieve a significant power over people's souls. High workability in combination with keenness results in the fact that such a person is usually able to do a lot of everything in his or her life, and whatever is attempted bears the seal of inspiration and is performed in a special way that distinctly shows their style. This person could be a great psychotherapist because his or her words can have a significant influence on other people.

Birthday Number Eight, Life Path Number Four

These people require much of themselves and expect the same from others. They make great managers if they are able to not place the bulk of the work on themselves, and learn to trust the abilities of those around them. They are convinced that the key to success in everything is order, discipline, responsibility, and following the established rules. Being averse to chaos and laxity, they are always ready to use their significant power of persuasion to get things right.

Birthday Number Eight, Life Path Number Five

Number Five usually gives a varied life experience and changeability of life, but thanks to the great inner power typical for Number Eight, a person with this combination of numbers will not get lost, no matter what the circumstances. As a rule, they manage to keep quiet confidence. They can be understood by people from any layer of society and naturally assume the role of an energetic center to which everyone applies for a share of strength and confidence.

Birthday Number Eight, Life Path Number Six

The Life Path of this person goes through understanding of beauty and love, and of the laws ruling close interpersonal relationships and societal life. The style of Number Eight on this path can be said to be powerful and active. Such people have plenty of energy but how will they use it? One scenario is like a bull in a china shop. Another is that he or she will be consumed by the emotional intricacies of life around them and will involve the closest people into the whirlwind of experience. In any case, the emotional life of society will be a major theme in this person's life.

Birthday Number Eight, Life Path Number Seven

Usually, Number Seven people are secretive and don't like to be exposed, but Birthday Number Eight makes a powerful combination with Life Path Number Seven. Number Seven makes such a person special, deep and insightful, while Number Eight gives him or her inner strength, confidence and ambitiousness, which leads these people to show their special natures rather than hid them.

Examples of such people are George Gershwin (September 26, 1898) and Emanuel Swedenborg (February 8, 1688).

Birthday Number Eight, Life Path Number Eight

This person has no doubts when it comes to his or her ability to influence people and can use this ability easily and naturally. When Life Path and Birthday are represented by the same number, it often happens that a person has a good idea of exactly what he or she is going to do in life, and can then achieve a notable success even at an early age. In this case, any kind of occupation can bring success if it is connected to a significant emotional or intellectual influence on other people.

Birthday Number Eight, Life Path Number Nine

The Life Path of Nine gives a person a global scope of interests, and Birthday Number Eight acts in this case as a powerful amplifier. Number Eight gives enough energy not to become superficial and aimless even in the most global of projects. Idealism, which is peculiar to Number Nine, is balanced out in this number combination by the practicality and rationality of Number Eight. As a result, a person can use even purely theoretical concepts in such a way that they start bringing about tangible benefits.

A typical example here is Carl Gustav Jung (July 26, 1875).

Birthday Number Nine

For persons born on the 9th day of any month

The typical features of those born on the 9th day are breadth of soul, idealism, and sometimes facile optimism, as well as the desire to ensure that everyone is happy -- that includes all of humanity. Respectively, creative abilities are given to these people in a quantity that would be sufficient for everyone. God loves them, because if they give freely what they have, honestly and openly and without a second thought, they will surely get their just reward. That reward, however, can come from an unexpected direction -- most probably not from those people made happy by this person's generosity.

Some examples of famous people born on the 9th day are Jean-Paul Belmondo (April 9, 1933), John Lennon (October 9, 1940), and Luigi Galvani (September 9, 1737).

For persons born on the 18th day of any month

Everything that was said for people born on the 9th day will be true for these people too, but there is also influence from Numbers One and Eight that gives more emphasis on the self and on personal power. This makes such a person more of a director than an actor. If such people begin to mostly consume and pile up resources for themselves, contradicting the true nature of Number Nine, their lives can become difficult and full of disappointments. On the other hand, if the influences of One and Eight are used as a foothold and an additional source of power, the achievements of this person can be very impressive.

For persons born on the 27th day of any month

Global interests, attention to detail, desire to penetrate the veil of mystery -- these qualities would be typical for a good scientist, and indeed, there are many scientists among those born on the 27th day. However, there are even more artists who were born on this day, since Number Two gives artistic abilities. It should be noted, though, that due to the influence of Number Seven, the approach and style typical for these people can be quite complex and not comprehensible for everyone.

Some examples of people born on the 27th day are Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (August 27, 1770), Johannes Kepler (December 27, 1571), and Niccolò Paganini (October 27, 1782).

Combination of Birthday Number Nine with Different Life Path Numbers

Birthday Number Nine, Life Path Number One

The Life Path of Number One makes these people pioneers, inventors, and discoverers. On the other hand, the Birthday Number Nine increases the scope of their interests, so their ideas and projects reach very far and produce an abundance of results. One and Nine are farthest from each other on the scale of numbers, and so their interaction can be a bit paradoxical: the more these people give to others, the more they receive for themselves in terms of glory, recognition, and fame.

A couple of examples for this combination of numbers are James Cook (October 27, 1728) and Niccolò Paganini (October 27, 1782).

Birthday Number Nine, Life Path Number Two

This combination of numbers often gives some bright creative or artistic talent. The Path of Number Two leads to understanding of harmony and balance in the world while the influence of Birthday Number Nine evokes a desire to share this understanding with everyone. In their creativity, such people don't know limits, and some of them are famous for the sheer number of their creations. Also, the theme of their creativity is often related to far-off lands, other countries or religious subjects.

Two examples of people with this pair of numbers are Jean-Paul Belmondo (April 9, 1933) and Nicholas Roerich (October 9, 1874).

Birthday Number Nine, Life Path Number Three

This is a very creative combination of numbers that frequently results in a more or less prominent literary talent. The whole world is interesting for this person; he or she has plenty of hopes and creative plans. Birthday Number Nine can show itself as a very wide range of interests, or altruism, or prominent idealism, or the ability to find inspiration in different cultures. It also gives generosity, optimism and good humor, as well as an abundance of creative results.

Birthday Number Nine, Life Path Number Four

This person may feel responsible for humanity as a whole, or for a large group of people. With a desire and an ability to work hard, due to the Life Path of Number Four, people with Birthday Number Nine would prefer to do something that inspires them, something that is aimed at some high ideals and can make many people happier. They tend to be more interested in activities that involve travel and that allow them to meet other cultures.

Birthday Number Nine, Life Path Number Five

Life Path Number Five gives the desire and ability to do many things at once and to find common ground with many different kinds of people. Birthday Number Nine, in this case, adds a talent for synthesizing many different details in order to find something common in them, and to explain them using some interesting idea. People with this combination of numbers can be very generous and optimistic, and often have a strong interest in foreign countries.

Birthday Number Nine, Life Path Number Six

Life Path Number Six leads people to understand harmony and the beauty of human relationships, while Birthday Number Nine gives them a high level of creative energy. With this combination of numbers, a person is bound to be interested in art, in one form or another. It is also not unusual for such people to be interested in pedagogy, wherein they will have a chance to ignite the fire of creativity in other people.

On example of a person with this combination of numbers is John Lennon (October 9, 1940).

Birthday Number Nine, Life Path Number Seven

Number Seven is ready to spend a lot of time in the search for truth and the solving of puzzles of nature and the human soul, while Number Nine is eager to immediately share that discovered truth with others, in fact, with everyone. As a result, such people always have something special, intimate, and non-trivial that they can relate to other people. Despite the level of understanding of the world's problems -- typical for Number Seven -- the energy and humor of Number Nine helps this person to be an optimist.

Birthday Number Nine, Life Path Number Eight

The Life Path of Number Eight moves people to strive for power, for an increase of their influence on other people, for the accumulation of personal energy. On the other hand, Birthday Number Nine offers fodder for the imagination: ideas, images, creative abilities that help people with this combination of numbers to inspire others, to plant in their minds the necessary motivations for them to act. A good numeric code for a politician or an actor, but it would also be useful for a scientist, for whom an inspiration of an idea (Nine) can help to deal with complex, multi-faceted problems (Eight).

An example of a celebrity with such a combination of numbers is Johannes Kepler (December 27, 1571).

Birthday Number Nine, Life Path Number Nine

Double Nine shows a romantic person, an idealist for whom the whole world, the whole universe is very interesting. He or she would probably be happy traveling non-stop around the world, but when this is not possible or practical, they can spend their energy inspiring other people, sharing ideas and discoveries with them. Usually, when both the Life Path and Birthday are represented by the same number, a person has a good idea about their true vocation from early childhood. However, the potential of Number Nine is so high that it might require many years and several stages of understanding before being able to determine where this path actually leads.

This was a very long lesson, because I wanted to give you at least a brief idea of what each and every combination of Life Path Number and Birthday Number can mean. Now it is your turn!

Take your list of people for whom you want to create a comprehensive numerological profile. The most important task of this lesson is to learn how to interpret two different numbers. For now, we only know two parameters, but we will be adding more and more of them with almost every lesson. It is very important to have a clear idea of where each of these numbers belongs in the numerological portrait. Otherwise, instead of a rich and illuminating multifaceted portrait, we'll get a confusing pile of bits and pieces of information.

It is important at this time to understand that both the Life Path Number and the Birthday Number describe the life of a person, but they describe it in two different ways. Life Path Number is like the ultimate goal of life, its major task. This is something that we might not do or remember every day, but we'd better have a general idea of where we are going, or we might lose our way. On the other hand, Birthday Number describes the way the person walks his or her life path. It is much closer to everyday realities, to what the person actually does in his or her daily life, and how he or she does it. I hope your personal study of the people you know, combined with the ideas I am offering you as a starting point, will help you to figure out the difference.

It is also useful to do mental exercises like this: What's the difference between a person who has Life Path 1 and Birthday 2, and another person with Life Path 2 and Birthday 1? Try this exercise with numbers from 1 to 5, and comparing neighboring numbers, like 1 and 2, 2 and 3 and so on.

In the next lesson, we are going to learn about the special cases in numerological calculations: Master Numbers and Karmic Numbers.
